So I'm wondering what is the absolute minimum wiring harness I need for the engine to run and the transmission to...

  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I just picked up a 2004 325ci with a blown head gasket, other than that, it's a beautiful car and I plan to keep it. I also have a 2001 330i which is not much more than a parts car but it has a strong motor, good compression, low miles, an ideal motor for a swap. Oh, and both are automatics. I'm...

    Hey everyone! It's been 10,000 years since I've been on and posted anything. I still have my Estoril Coupe which is being slowly and painstakingly restored to something reasonably close to OEM spec. It's currently at a body shot (8 months now) shaking off years of northern winters. I should...

    Hey guys, another vid I made for anyone looking to upgrade their trim to the LCI one with the LED lighting. Your car must have the ambient lighting option (you can check by seeing if the lower trim above the cupholders have an LED light that turns on when the interior lights are turned off -...
